When the inheritance is kept in the court of inheritance, the heirs have the power to ask for a cash advance against inheritance, which is called inheritance financing. Successions are regulated by a process called probate. The probate process can take some time to resolve and in the meantime, the value of the property is depreciated. When the deceased have debts to settle, there is a good chance that this will be done by selling the assets in liquidation.
